Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Hello

Who knows how many there were NCO's (lance corporal, corporal, lance sergeant, sergeant, staff sergeant ,ect...) of buglers and trumpeter at Isandhlwana in the:
- British mounted infantry
- Natal Mounted Police
- Natal Carbineers
- Newcastle Mounted Rifles
- Buffalo Border Guards
- Sikali's Horse, 3 Troops
- Horse Edentale
- Horse Hlubi
Their rank chevrons were the same as in the infantry and color identical?
Cheers

Hi Pascal.
Sorry to say I cant find any information dealing with the Rank Chevrons of the Colonial forces compared to the Imperial forces.
I can give you details of the British rank chevrons if that is of any help . This information is in ' British Forces In Zululand 1879 '
by Ian Knight and Colour Plates by Richard Scollins .
cheers 90th. Idea
